Style: American Barleywine

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 14.00%

Notes / Commercial Description:
Anabasis is our barleywine that was brewed with American malt and hops, but fermented with a strong English Ale strain to provide rich toffees, fruity hops, with a strong leathery, caramel backbone. Bourbon, vanilla and gentle oxidation showcase the 24 months of bourbon barrel aging that Anabasis went through to reach maturity.

Pours murky brown. Nose is figs, raisins, toffee, caramel, butterscotch, bourbon, char. Taste is a bit more subtle, with a well balanced profile of the aforementioned aromas. Nice, sticky slick mouthfeel. Overall, a very nice example of the style. A more seasoned barelywine drinker may have this rated a bit higher, but for me while great, I'm not sure I can rate this in the same ballpark as a well done BA stout.

Pours a very dark brown with ruby accents as it leaves the bottle and on the edges of the glass. No head. Aroma is toasty, roasty, caramel, butterscotch, herbal and floral hops. Flavor profile is butterscotch, toffee, caramel, and roasty, toasty malts. Big, deep complexity. Mouth feel is thick with a chewy texture. Overall, big, firm and filling. This is amazing.

Served from a 750mL bottle at the Side Project Cellar.

Batch 3 at Side Project - The Cellar.

Incredibly dark. Very much a stout appearance. No foam. Toffee, rich, sweet caramel. Great mouthfeel and smooth. Rivals King Henry.
